The ten minute segment of this video profiling book artist, Julie Chen, begins around 37 minutes into the video. Fast forward to that time if you don't want to watch the whole video.

Journal: Select a page from the Codex Espangliensis which you would be interested in using for your research paper. Do an interpretation of the page itself paying particular attention to the relationship between words and images and the contributions of each of the collaborators who created the work. Refine your inquiry question based on this page. Post on your discussion tab by Saturday 9AM. Please complete a Formal Analysis worksheet for that page and bring it to class to turn in.
